Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the regulation of the Malaysian futures market. Until recently, the regulatory framework of the Malaysian futures and options market was divided into two segments. One dealing with commodity futures and the other with financial futures and options. To deter undesirable and fraudulent practices in the market the Futures Industry Act deals with the trading offences under ss. 79 to 88. These provisions cover false trading, bucketing, dissemination of information about false trading, manipulation and cornering, devices to defraud, false and misleading statements, abuse of information obtained in official capacity, falsification of records and the penalties for these offences. They aim at discouraging and preventing unfair use of advantageous positions and price distortions.

Keywords: commodity futures; financial futures; financial options; Futures Industry Act; Islamic Law; Malaysian futures market regulation; trading offences
